ABSTRACT
Ovarian large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma is a rare tumor that is usually associated with surface epithelial tumors. Mucinous tumors are most common surface epithelial component identified in reported cases. Ovarian mucinous tumor associated with large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma is almost always an intestinal type. However, large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma associated with pure mucinous borderline tumor of endocervical-like type has not been described previously. The present case report describes a large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma associated with endocervical-like mucinous borderline tumor of the ovary in a 35-year-old woman. The tumor was confirmed by histopathology and immunohistochemistry. A review of the pertinent literature is included.
Key Words: Ovary; Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma; Mucinous tumor
